Editor chat summary: 18 September 2019

This post summarizes the weekly editor chat meeting on Wednesday, 18 September 2019 at 1300 UTC held in Slack.

The agenda can be found here.

Many folks were in transit, which made this a less busy meeting than usual.

Gutenberg 6.5 Release

Releasing shortly. You can see the RC here.

This will be the last release that goes completely into WordPress 5.3.

This is released now!

Weekly Priorities

Help test the RC!

Now released and in trunk — Please help test!

Task Coordination

  • @nadir is working with @joen on improvements to the Separator block (may end up as new Divider block), and looking into making the Stylelint config more strict.

Open Floor

@paaljoachim wanted to bring attention to a couple tickets:

@mikeschroder brought up https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/6652, which is in regards to adding height and width attributes back to images in Gutenberg.

This ticket had conversation that started on Twitter with a tweet from Jen Simmons. There is a WICG recommendation that Mozilla is testing (and sounds like Chrome is planning as well) that makes rendering faster if height and width attributes are provided for images.

@desaiuditd is looking for feedback on https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/pull/17311, specifically regarding details on how the proposed useFilter would work.


Note: If you’re reading this summary outside of the meeting, please leave a comment if you can/want to help with something.

The next meeting is on 25 August 2019 at 13:00 UTC.
